Wells Fargo Center Unveils New Scoreboard, Premium Club Space
The Wells Fargo Center has unveiled two "signature projects" as part of the arena's $265M renovation, including the "first-ever kinetic 4K center-hung scoreboard," according to Marc Narducci of the PHILADELPHIA INQUIRER. The entire system "weighs 90,000 pounds and features a grand total of 6,601 square feet of 4K LED video technology." The board also "comes with high-resolution 4K screens" and has 50% "more screen real estate" than the arena's previous center-hung model. Flyers and Wells Fargo Center President of Business Operations Valerie Camillo said that Comcast Spectacor is "fully funding" the $265M renovation initiative. She also said that the scoreboard itself cost $15M, but the "other things that go to support it such as the projection lighting, and all of the content used, brought the cost to 'north of'" $20M. Another part of the renovations that was unveiled yesterday is the Center City Club, a 7,393-square-foot premium space. 76ers President Chris Heck said that it would be "available for about 1,000 Sixers ticket holders." The Flyers said that they also are "making it available to 670 of their ticket holders." Camillo said that the "starting ticket" for the new area is about $240 per game, where the fan "gets the ticket and all-inclusive food and beverage options" (PHILADELPHIA INQUIRER, 9/11). The new scoreboard was created by ANC and TAIT (THE DAILY).
